Could she have stood underneath something that has dropped on her?

Did you put anything on after shearing, that stayed on the fleece instead of dispersing or breaking down?

I was puzzled by one of mine, she had a white caked deposit (not like your stuff though). Eventually I remembered I'd put louse powder on while shev was inside previous year.

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

 

Another fleece question, where to get fleece washed and carded for felting?
